Cannot sign up for 3rd party fundraising platform (Guidestar blocking it?)

Hi there,


The nonprofit Floating Hospital Foundation, Inc. (EIN 30-0102842) has been trying to sign up for Give Lively's fundraising platform. Give Lively requires nonprofits to enter their EIN to sign up. Give Lively then searches their EIN in the Guidestar database and pulls their information. If an organization is not listed in Guidestar, they cannot sign up for Give Lively.


The nonprofit I am inquiring about (30-0102842) is listed on Guidestar, but the signup is getting blocked. I know there are instances in the past where the individual who created the Guidestar profile may have blocked 3rd party donations. Can you look into this and see if that is the case? Or explain why 30-0102842 can't sign up?
